On the sidelines of the T20 World Cup, he expressed that he was very sad and shocked to be left out of the squad.

Chand told Cricbuzz,

“It was not an ideal situation. Because for me personally, it was what I had dreamt of for the last three years. Obviously, it was a big setback. And it took me time to accept it. It’s never easy as a player, after losing all those things at home in India, it’s a goal that was driving me for the last three years. So it’s difficult. I won’t say what happened. But it was difficult. I wasn’t at my best for a while.”

He considered the decision a result of his inner battle and said,

“It was a very internal battle and it’s basically a setback. It keeps pulling you inside. The feeling stays for a day and then goes away and then comes back. Reality hits me in different stages. Once you go through it you automatically get better. There comes a time when you think it didn’t happen, that’s it. I don’t even think about it.”
